Need doctor to prescribe Desoxyn

I am a vet and have ptsd and adhd. A fellow service member gave me dysoxin to help with overwhelming anxiety before a speech I gave at a convention last week. I ask my dr for a script and he said no. I can't take adderall because of the irritability at night. And nothing else works. This drug worked for me. Why can't I get a dr to give it to me? I am in Orange County, CA. Can anyone point me in the right direction? ## I have ADHD and have tried everything from Stratera to Vyvance & Adderall. Adderall makes me sleepy & groggy. From the research I've done I need Desoxyn. Is there a Dr in Tulsa Oklahoma that will write for it? ## Need a Dr to prescribe Desoxyn in Houston, Conroe tx area. ## I would really like to know if there are any psychiatrists or mental health prov...

How to request Desoxyn from my doctor

I have tried every adhd med. Am currently taking adderall 20mg but have been feeling extremely tired all the time for the last 6 months. How should I approach my doctor about trying Desoxyn and which kinds or brands are still available? Or how else can I try it? ## Usually, it is best to not ask for a specific medication, just let them know that the current on is not working for you. The discussion of alternative options should naturally result from that. Desoxyn contains Methamphetamine, so it is not generally the first choice used for treatment of ADHD. The FDA warns that it must be used with caution, as it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, anorexia, insomnia, and irritability. Ref: Desoxyn and ADHD Which other medications ...

Has anyone been given Desoxyn

Desoxyn seems to be given to some. I for one have never had it or anything close, legal or not. If you did use it, was it effective or was it too much to tolerate. What was your experience? ## I haven't taken it yet. Pharmacies like CVS and Ralphs don't have it and other pharmacies I've called need the actual written prescription to tell me if they can even fill it. So I have to get the physical prescription from my Dr. and drive around and ask. I'll let you know asap. ## Desoxyn is new news to me as well. One thing I don't understand though is why/how doctors are able to justify writing prescriptions for what is widely recognized to be an illicit/illegal substance (more commonly known as Methamphetamine). For the FDA to approve Methamphetamine (Desoxyn) seems to me ...

Desoxyn 15mg Gradumet

Amphetamine ## This Medication was prescribied to me for narcolepsy. My quality of life has dropped tremendously.I lost 50% of my functions. I have not been awake since this drug was discontinued.

Switching from Adderall to Desoxyn?

I've had an ADHD diagnosis for quite a while. I've been on everything from Concerta to Adderall and am currently prescribed 90mg of Adderall a day. I am pretty curious about Desoxyn and the thought that I could get the same results from 5 mg a day. What are your thoughts and where can I go? I'm in Virginia Beach. ## As MedlinePlus states, it contains Methamphetamine, it is used to treat ADHD and to aid in weight loss. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, irritability, anorexia, insomnia, and nervousness. However, there is no way to say how well it will work for you. That is something that only you and your doctor can decide. Have you asked them about trying it, yet? Are you on any other medications? ## I knew a guy who was strung out on it and was a babbling...

Is Desoxyn still available as Adderall substitute?

Redbook 2009 page 375 "Pharmacys Fundamental Reference" 100 tabs of five mg Ovation Pharmaceutical "Desoxyn" is $381.65 wholesale, and is $457.98 retail, "cash in fist" or $4.58 per tablet. I used to take the former Abbott Labs of North Chicago, Illinois, the former 10mg and 15 mg. "Desoxyn Gradumet tablets, which were available at least from 1965 until 1999, these were extended (sustained release tablets) not the instant release 5 mg ones that Ovation is licensed to manufacture for Abbott. The 10 mg were orange, the15 mg were yellow. Even the white ones, 5 mg, were embossed with the classic little reverse "a" in a small letter. Much superior, in my humble opinion, were Abbott's former stimulant called "Desbutal" which also were methamphet...

Prescription for Desoxyn

I would like to know how to obtain a prescription. ## send info please ## Desoxyn was prescribed to me and my son for narcolepsy. It is amazing that such a safe & effective drug was taken off the market. We have not been awake since the discontinuince of desoxyn. We currently take adderrall & dexedrine, they don't come close. What a better world it would be if it were still available. ## If you have ADD , ADHD or Narcolepsy, Your Doctor can write you a script. Usually only if nothing else works! Provigil...ect...Aderrall, ritilan, Dexadrine.... Just makes my heart beat fast, gives me the jitters and makes me feel .....scared!???? DESOXYN does not do this. It is absorbed much better in the fatty tissue of the brain. The HORROR stories are from the crap sold on the steet. 15 t...

Confused? also take Geodon avian razadone wellbutrin and effexor ## You might need to up your dose(s) check with your Dr. Question, where do you get your prescriptions filled?

Desoxyn availability

Hi, Desoxyn is not discontinued! Or I just got ripped off by my drug store today! 3/13/2006. Only is available in 5mg. doses. For ADD / ADHD or Narcolepsy. Also for obesity but I never heard of any one getting it for that. I am 180 lbs. Dosage that works best for me Is 25 mg. 2 X Day. Some will tell you to use more. I think much more is bordering on abuse, instead of therapy. I have ADD & Narcolepsy! ## No it's not discontinued it's made by Ovation Pharmeceuticals. I think the name just changed but you can locate it under that. Good luck getting it. I have the severest case of ADHD ever documented in Washington State and none of the stimulants work half as good as Desoxyn and I can't get it. I could if I wanted to pay the $1000+ for it myself. Yeah right! Let me know how...

scripts desoxyn

Is there a doctor in the tulsa area.who will prescribe desoxyn? ## Hello, Colin2114! How are you? Due to the regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication, you'll need to see a specialist for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Upon seeing one, you also won't be able to demand a specific medication, or they will view that as being drug seeking behavior. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? If so, that would most likely be the easiest way of finding the help you need.

Any opinions on which is bettet for add ## Hello, Irock7! How are you? You will get opinions on both sides of the fence for both.
